of the administration who came forward to give a speech about it. this past spring it was john brennan who gave the first ever u.s. policy address, admitting to some of our drone strikes. and defending them as both wise and legal. john brennan also this part fall told the "washington post" this -- "i think the rule should be that if we're going to take actions overseas that result in the deaths of people the united states should take responsibility for that. we should. but we don't. at least not for all of the drone strikes that we launch. the deniable drone strikes, the ones the u.s. does not take responsibility for, the ones the u.s. does not admit to even though everybody knows we're responsible for them, those are the ones that are committed as covert action. they're the ones that are launched by the cia. as john brennan has now been nominated to head the cia, he's being described as somebody who wants to bring this policy out of the dark. not that he wants to stop killing people using this particular tool, but he thinks we should do it in a way that is more accountable. he specifically thi

heritage tells us john brennan's road may be a little bumpy. let's begin with wendall goler. >> good evening. president obama is nominating the former republican senator to be secretary of defense and 25-year veteran of the c.i.a. to head the agency. >> these two leaders have dedicated their lives to protect the country. i urge the senate to confirm them as soon as possible. >> but hagel's selection grew more criticism and the choice of john brennan threatened to raise questions about water boarding that he didn't want to answer when he was considered four years ago. had a ha ge8, obama said would be an outspoken advocate for severs men and women. and his business experience will help him prioritize pentagon spending cuts that everyone knows is coming. >> even though we make tough fiscal choices we have to do so wisely guided by a our stlaj and keep the military the strongest fighting force. >> reporter: but it drew immediate fire. it was a 14-year-old comment about a diplomat being aggressively gay which hagel has apologized and his opposition in iraq and troop surge and independent

of evidence that i'm anti-israel." >> john brennan spent 25 years in the cia before he became the president's chief counter-terrorism adviser working inside the white house. the president considered brennan for the same job after he first got elected in 2008. brennan withdrew his name from consideration after he got associated with the enhanced interrogation techniques that had been used during the bush administration. charges brennan denied. over the past several years, brennan has been instrumental in expanding the administration's use of drone strikes fwens terror targets around the world. in fact, just hours after the nomination was announced, a u.s. drone reportedly killed eight more militants in pakistan. yesterday in the announcement at the white house, president obama praised brennan's high standards as an intelligence leader. >> he has worked to imbed our efforts in a strong legal framework. he understands we're a nation of laws. and in moments of debate and decision, he asks the tough questions and he insisted on high and rigorous standards. time and again he has spoken to the ame

is elsewhere is john brennan. >> reporter: i think that that's right. there's no doubt about that. this certainly gives him a little bit of time and space after, you know, scrutiny being on him. but, again, i think that, you know, this is big news today, that schumer came out and said that he is going to support hagel moving forward. i think a lot of eyes were sort of waiting for this decision, watching to see what would happen, and you're right, gives john brennan a little bit more room moving forward. >> kristin welker, as ever, thank you so much. >> thanks, martin. >> and we'll be right back. my insurance rates are probably gonna double. but, dad, you've got...

. lindsey graham says he's going to put a hold on john brennan. are they going to have to say guys, you have to pick one. you can't fight them all because the obstruction charge then starts. >> i think the idea of holds is maybe a little bit farfetched. you know, even those who are sounding pretty tough about chuck hagel indicate they think he'll get confirmed. but they want to ask tough questions. i think it's tough to beat a senator over policy issues. even if the issue is real. i think john brennan is going to face questions about the leak investigation. maybe on the left over some of the, you know, enhanced interrogation issues. you know -- i don't see any of these things bubbling up to the point where you actually get a hold. you know, we'll see. but i don't see that. but i see the hagel nomination certainly being tough. >> and i want to turn to guns here a minute. we're seeing -- it's funny, the white house has a very vehement reaction to the "new york times" story this morning, saying they are just wrong, they are not backing off an assault weapons ban. they are going to make thi

have been children. the person who is known as mr. drone is john brennan so what does he get? of course, a promotion. he's now being considered for the head of the c.i.a. in fact, he has been nominated by president obama. now when he was asked about drone strikes earlier, here's part of what he had to say. >> we may also use force isn't with our inherent rights of national self defense. there is nothing in international law that bans the use of remotely piloted aircraft for this purpose or prohibits us from using lethal force against our enemies outside an active battlefield. at least when the country involved consents or is unable for unwilling to take action against the threat. >> cenk: right, but what will signature strikes where we don't even know who we're killing or killing u.s. citizens without due process. that was not addressed. he did talk more at. >> if we want to others nations to use them responsibly we must use them responsibly. if we want other nations to adhere to high standard then we must do so as well. we cannot expect from others what we won't do ourselves. >> cenk:
nominated so far, you would think john brennan would be the most controversial. he's the one no one is talking about. >> that's right. you can look at all these candidates, hagel and lew, mainstream candidates who represent the president's positions flawlessly, are a stark contrast with the bush administration, therefore the republicans might have beef with him, but that's just not happening. we're being surprised when clearly it's part of a broader strategy to discredit the very idea of government. yes, the polls show that congress is more unpopular than head lice. >> and cockroaches. >> nickelback. >> castro still slightly more unpopular, but i think they can fix that. long term, that's not how people see it. long term, people go government, can't get anything gun. it casts it on the whole enterprise. >> hans, i want to bring you back in this for a second to talk about the ethicacy of a choice of jack lew as head of the treasury department. when we began this fiscal slope, curve, cliff discussion, tim geithner was involved, there was a sense jack lew would be involved. they were m
. and i think john brennan in his time at the white house, and presuming he moves over to the central intelligence agency, i think he philosophically has that point of view. there are some limits in terms of classification, but i believe the secrecy surrounding drones particularly with respect to pakistan works with to our advantage. i hope the administration finds ways to be more transparent going forward. this is a full plate for john kerry. we have known crisis dealing with syria. can we have a meaningful conversation with iran. he'll be at the forefront of creating a sustainable relationship and a working relationship with new leadership in china. he has been very involved over the years but only in pakistan issues afghanistan issues. he'll work the diplomat iic aspect of the war and he has been involved in the crisis of sudan. if the list wasn't long enough there is the emerging challenge in mali and across and of courseofcourse britain's role, he'll be looking at the concerns of the united states about britain turning inward as opposed to being a strong voice within the european
of fights. he's willing to fight on chuck hagel and here you have a guy, john brennan for the cia who said that jihad is a legitimate tenant of isl-- tenet of islam and he said that he's not going to allow the debt ceiling debate to be died to spending cuts which we desperately needs. he obviously -- he wants a fight. what do you make of the strategy that he's employed. >> i think what's happened to him is he feels that by winning a second term, with a slight addition of democrats in the house and the senate he now is, you know, king of the the world to quote an oscar winner of bygone days. and you noticed in these lists, look at the list of the major appointees, starting with brennan and hagel and these are nobody of independent stature. it's not like the first term where he had a clinton, where he had a gates, where he had people who could be a team of rivals. this is a team of essential, you know, fact totems. he wants to rule and he wants to govern and he will not let anybody stand in his way and i think that's what he's saying and he will take on any fight in order to get his people.
. that picture -- the general picture you showed before the segment of the top level appointees, john brennan we didn't mention, all being men. it is a change. it is a little disturbing. and the departure of somebody as luminous as hillary clinton, too, makes it feel more stark and more like, you know, really something that should be corrected. and i don't -- i think he will in future appointments. but he doesn't have a chance to correct those top, top appointments. >> your thoughts? you lived through all this. you know what affirmative action looks like. that's not affirmative action. >> no. i preach diversity and will preach it to the president. it's a process and you keep working at it. >> what should -- we worked it with the producers today. trying to frame this question. things happen like this organically. people know people. we know how it works. what is it he didn't do that he should have done affirmatively? >> did he borrow, you know, one of romney's binders full of women or something like that? apparently he didn't. diversity, it has to happen on all levels. so you look for somebody to
, governor, we are not -- the person that in theory should be the most controversial, john brennan, the drone program, he took himself out of contention in 2008. nothing has been said about him. >> because he is low key and on the radar screen from the public, and it not one of the big three. >> might check in with rachel maddow. >> i was going to say, i also think it's because there's been an acquessence. >> the republicans like drones. >> bernie sanders is planting a flag in jack lew's -- >> he represents the entire left of the democratic party? >> one wing of the very progressive left. you are just moving it like a very far -- a tad -- i'm not saying anything against senators here on this show, but i think -- >> bernie is a greet graet guy, but it's a tiny little wing. it's probably a little fet zeesh fet other the wing. >> wow. feathers and wicks. we need to take a break. president obama breaks bread with hamid karzai at the white house, but will they break from his withdrawal plans from afghanistan? we will have a live update on the meeting after this. (dog) larry,larry,larrryyy. why tak
of john brennan, who has been, you know, back and forth. the drone program, and we are now finally actually starting to talk about drones and whether or not they help or hinder america's national security interests. what you hear about anecdotally is that when you have the drone strikes, it is often in the radicalizing people on the ground, as much as it is, you know, sort of saving american blood and treasure. it is definitely a double-eejed sword. >> it's a complicated question. on the one hand you have successes, foreign policy successes, that the white house can crow and say we've done and killed our enemies, and they like to be able to do that. on the other hand, yes, they're making enemies. you're making more enemies. it's perhaps, you know, more of the same problem. it's just worsening the problem. >> amman, the morning times writes the hostage situation in algeria has hutenned concerns that a military intervention could transform militant groups that had once only a regional focus into enemies of the u.s. the backlash might end up being worse than the original threat. what
been killed by drones in pakistan and yemen. >> john: john brennan who has been in charge of president obama's drone war said the drone strikes have been executed with surgical precision. does that jive with what you found on the ground? >> no. that's a disgusting statement. they've not been educated -- they've not been executed with surgical precision although maybe a terrible hack surgeon if that's your definition. but there are numerous people, numerous incidents of absolutely outrageous civilian casualties and the other thing that we must understand is even if the drones are technically accurate and there may be some question about that how are they getting the information as to who to attack with drones? well they're ex-pakistani military are bribing people in the pro inses to give them names and -- provinces and that's how and who the drones are being directed at. just like in guantanamo, people are turning in folks who they have grudges with or who are their enemies. we must think about that. these incredible instruments flying from the sky attacking and killing are based on a n
senator lindsay graham vows to hold up john brennan's confirmation to the cia until we get inching on the attacks in benghazi. and the national cathedral says yes to same-sex marriage, receiving cheers and jeers. we will have a fair and balanced debate. america's news headquarters from the nation's capitol starts right now. president obama's second term hasn't started officially, but the agenda and the cabinet are taking shape. so are some of the clashes over the president's nominations. jennifer griffin has more on the fights ahead. >> reporter: first, there will be the confirmation battles, many of which seem like they will be bruising. none more than the hearing before the senate armed services committee over the new defense secretary, chuck hagel. the hearings could start as early as this week. the white house has mounted a vigorous defense. hagel says his record on iran, gays and the military has been distorted. members of the armed services committee will question hagel. but today on "face the nation," senator john mccain called hagel a friend, though he has questions and is
expect that to continue. potentially on john brennan. is this a preview of what we might expect down the road with the president's supreme court picks? >> what of the talk of harry reid, the majority leader in the senate, possibly getting rid of the filibustir, the sole tool to stop a vote on certain matters? it is not clear what matters would be -- he would be getting rid of the filibuster on? >> this has been in discussion. it could be a very minor change to the filibuster, versus something major. so i think eye am inclined-- the reason that harry reid is so other than ked, it has stopped business in the senate. they want to be able to bring bills up and to have the filibuster be used for things it's meant to be used for and for people to filibuster, not threat tone filibuster and gum up the gears of the senate. >> speaking of gear, let's change gears to the speech tomorrow while we have you. charles, what about this message that he is going to bring -- how tough will it be for president obama to knock down president obama the first time and to still touch chords that raise the cou
. i'm more concerned with why we're getting john brennan without any explanations as to what he did for the bush administration which is sliding under the radar. i don't want to harsh your preinaugural mellow. >> stephanie: please don't. i know you're coming to washington on happy clappy clouds. >> stephanie: you're going to be there right? >> what time is the show? >> stephanie: 8:00 i would think. normal time. >> stephanie, what time are they asking you to be there? >> do you know this yet? >> stephanie: for sexy liberal? 8:00. >> 7:59:30. >> stephanie: i stagger in. although cornyn was trying to put a wrench in the hagel thing. no closed door meeting and many troubling public statements. >> troubling. very troubling. >> like susan rice, very troubling. >> stephanie: that's always the code word, troubling. some things are very troubling. >> i'm taking bets on when one of the guys will come out and say this guy isn't as temperamentally suited or judicious in his comments as susan rice might have been. sooner or later they're going to get around back to her again. it was like i don'
. the president has promoted four women to senior posts in the white house. most notably lisa monaco that if john brennan is confirmed to run cia, she will be the president's white house adviser on homeland security and she has an interesting resume herself. >> let's talk more about that. we saw valerie jared. had had a chance to press her on whether or not the white house feels there's a sufficient amount of women and diversity on the cabinet. they say when it is all said and done, it will be reflective of the united states. do you get a sense the white house -- there will be more announcements and look more diverse? >> reporter: sylvia matthews burrell is the top contender to run the office of management and budget, which is currently run by jeff and previously run by lew. on may be the administration and then at the gates foundation and now walmart so that would be one woman. and then lisa monaco is an interesting person. she's currently at the justice department. she was fbi director mueller's chief of staff. she also worked on the enron task force helping to prosecute some of the people in
